To be the best, you have to attract the best people who are willing to work hard and produce phenomenal results. To support our efforts, our benefit plan is a significant part of our employee’s total compensation package. SBG appreciates that in order to retain and recruit the best employees, we need to remain competitive. We hire highly motivated employees with a strong work ethic, a belief that nothing is impossible and a desire to be an exciting part of the future. SBG values its employees and offers an outstanding and comprehensive benefit package that affords employees the opportunity to design a comprehensive benefit package that best suits their needs.
Eligible employees are able to sign up for the company-sponsored medical/prescription, vision and dental plans. Deductions are made on a pre-tax basis. Sinclair shares the health and dental insurance premium costs with its employees.
Our plans provide employees with choices. Employees are not tied down to particular doctors but can decide whether they want to use providers inside or outside of a network. At Sinclair, employees can choose the level of health coverage that best fits their needs as well as the needs of their family.
Sinclair offers three levels of dental coverage, all of which provide for preventative and restorative services. With our dental insurance program, employees are free to choose whichever dental provider they wish to go to, however great discounts will apply to in-network providers.
Vision care is an important part of your overall health care. The Sinclair Vision Plan provides coverage for routine eye exams, eyeglasses, and contact lenses. Employees can elect coverage for themselves and their eligible dependents.
